Adam LaRoche, who has averaged over 20 home runs a year in his 12-year Major League Baseball career, is walking away from his $13 million contract with the Chicago White Sox because the club would no longer allow Drake, his teenage son to accompany him the clubhouse.

Psalm 127:3–5 (HCSB) “Sons are indeed a heritage from the LORD, children, a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the sons born in one’s youth. 5 Happy is the man who has filled his quiver with them. Such men will never be put to shame when they speak with their enemies at the city gate.”
